But can it work in a home theater? First, I need to talk about that light source.
Most projectors use UHP lamps, which are, effectively, really expensive and powerful light bulbs. They generate a lot of light for relatively little energy, but this isn’t to say they’re remotely efficient. They still generate a ton of heat. Worse, they’re a wear part. As you use the projector mostly as you turn it on and offthe bulb gets dimmer and dimmer, eventually failing completely and requiring a several-hundred-dollar replacement.
New on the scene is the LED as a light source. There are many benefits to LED, not least or those better color and much better longevity. Casio has gone a slightly different route – one I hadn’t seen before – that’s rather fascinating in its differentness. Instead of three LEDs one for each primary color: By using a laser they. As if using lasers wasn’t weird enough, the blue laser is also used to create the green light.

Shockingly, there are motorized zoom and focus controls. I’ve reviewed expensive “big” projectors that don’t have this. If you’re planning on using the A as a caaio projector, the magnetic lens cap is pretty trick. I feel like I’m missing something. Hey, where the hell is the green? While undoubtedly xj-s146 and interesting, it’s still a projector and we have to judge it as such.
